We walked in the morning but it was already hot and humit.

Walking in the shade made it fairly pleasant.

Back home the birds, like the catbird above and the cardinal below, were beating the heat on my deck baths.

When I first spotted the carolina wren, I thought she might be injured.

I was relieved when she flew up on the chair.

with no shade around here, I've neglected walking outside. you certainly had a pretty area in which to walk. I would have throught the same about the bird. it did look injured, rather an odd sitting position for a bird.

What a strange position for the bird to strike.

I like seeing your walk in the woods, but it was so humid in the middle of the day today, I stayed indoors. I gardened in the early morning when it was more pleasant. Your birds are so happy with their baths.

Oh the wren was sunning... Great catch! I know it looked bad, but you can see the wings fanned out.. Great post for Nature Notes Carver...Michelle

Your sweet wren was just feeling the heat --- sweet baby. Birds in your neighborhood are so lucky to have your watering hole and food right there for them -- especially in such hot weather.
